 SYNOPSIS: 

In China, the mighty Yangtze is known simply as “The River.” It is about to be transformed by the biggest hydroelectric dam in history, the Three Gorges Project.  At the river’s edge, a girl named Yu Shui says goodbye to her family as the floodwaters rise towards their small homestead. She is leaving to work on a cruise line that takes tourists on a “Farewell to the Three Gorges Tour”, where visitors get to wave goodbye to 5000 years of civilization. It’s “The Love Boat” meets “Apocalypse Now”. The Three Gorges Dam — contested symbol of the Chinese economic miracle — provides the epic backdrop for Up the Yangtze, a dramatic feature documentary on life inside modern China. 95 minutes, 35mm. Named one of Canada’s Top Ten Films and best Canadian Documentary at the Vancouver Film Festival, UP THE YANGTZE opens its theatrical run in Canada on February 8th, 2008. Presented in glorious 35mm in Dolby 5.1 Surround , UP THE YANGTZE is a cinematic immersion in China’s rapidly changing landscape.
